Home-baked bread is far tastier than anything you can buy in the supermarket. Try these Mauritian nutty bread rolls – they’re easy to make, and best eaten warm.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Resting time: 30 minutes
- 500g flour + 50g for dusting
- 10g baker’s yeast
- 75g mild curry powder

- 50g cashews
- 1/4 tsp powdered red chilli
1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, yeast, 30cl water and the curry powder.
2. Knead by hand for 15 minutes. Add salt, peanuts and cashews then knead for 5 more minutes.
3. Shape this dough into balls, about 50g each. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let the dough rise at room temperature for 30 minutes.
4. Preheat oven to 220ºC. Place a bowl of water in the oven.
5. Lightly dust the rolls with sifted flour and red chilli powder. Using a sharp blade, make 3 slits on 3 sides of each roll. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
